Scotty passes on....

Looks like James Doohan passed on today... I remember growing up with the Star Trek Movies, so it's sad to see the original cast leaving us...

Besides, who spawned more impressions than Scotty? Well, maybe Kirk. But who else?

LOS ANGELES(AP) James Doohan, the burly chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise in the original "Star Trek" TV series and motion pictures who responded to the command "Beam me up, Scotty," died early Wednesday. He was 85.

Doohan died at 5:30 a.m. at his Redmond, Wash., home with his wife of 28 years, Wende, at his side, Los Angeles agent and longtime friend Steve Stevens said. The cause of death was pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease, he said
